Survival Training

Scott and Grace have been watching alot of survival type shows on Netflix. I know there is alot of blogs around that are teaching preparedness and such. We do alot of these things at our home. Storing food, raising chickens, soon to be raising catfish, gardening, etc. Well Scott wanted to start a series of lessons with Grace along those lines. Today was the first lesson - how to build a fire. First he taught her what type of materials to collect.

How to use a knife and continue to build the nest of materials.

What a flint was and what type of knife to use that would make a spark.

After three tries she made fire. She was very excited.

Something I will NOT be teaching any of mine very soon. I think they could probably come up with a way on their own. ;-)
